Today, Roku announced a new survey they did on romance and streaming. This includes a surprising number of streamers who admit to lying about shows they like if they think their partner enjoys it.
According to Roku’s report a surprising 23% of streamers, equating to about 1 in 4 streamers, admit to a streaming secret—they’ve pretended to like a show, all in the name of love. Yes, you read that right. It seems matters of the heart are intertwined with matters of the screen. Whether feigning enthusiasm to keep the peace or diving into a series they would normally never choose on their own, this phenomenon sheds light on the fascinating dynamics of streaming and relationships.
